Hi! Just found your tumblr and blog and I'm so happy, so much inspiration. And I saw your "Guide to Paris" on your blog which is super exciting because I'm going to live in Paris for a few months beginning in September so your tips will come in hand for sure. Thanks! xxx Lenka
Happy to have you as a new reader and enjoy Paris to the mostest during your time here…it is most beautiful in autumn after all!
